Identify a basic overview of services, responsibilities, and tasks of the HAIS Helpdesk and Desktop groups. This information is posted for the UC Irvine community for the purpose of outlining what services these groups can provide. This document it a companion to the Desktop SLA, which covers these topics in greater detail.
Helpdesk Agents answer calls from UC Irvine affiliated customers. Based on past statistics and call volume logic, they are allocated approximately 3 minutes per call to diagnosing and attempting to resolve common HAIS hardware and software issues. If the issues is resolved in a timely fashion, the call is concluded and no documentation is created. If the Agent is unable to resolve the issue within a reasonable amount of time, an Altiris Incident is created and escalate to next tier support.

Requests for Service (RFS) and Trouble (TRB) calls are handled in the order they are received. Patient Care related requests are escalated to the top of the list and have a 2 hour response time.
Non Standard hardware and software requests are supported under an Hourly Contract. Some requests are referred to a local vender, or the Campus book Store for diagnosis and repair depending on the complexity of the request. The goal isto get the write skill set to accomplish the request in the most efficient way possible.
Installation requests for multiple (5+) computers are deployed by the HAIS Client Services group via software solutions or manually by the engineer.
